Ten years too late, it’s good riddance to wind farms – one of the most dangerous delusions of our age

Christopher Booker UK

"I have been following this (wind turbine) extraordinary story for ten years ever since, in 2002, I first began looking carefully at what really lay behind this deceptive obsession with the charms of wind power. It didn’t take me long, talking to experts and reading up on the technical facts, to see that the fashionable enthusiasm for wind energy was based on a colossal illusion. I first warned about what I called ‘the greatest mistake in our history’ in an article in the Mail almost ten years ago.
I described the claim that it would be the answer to all our future energy problems as a catastrophic failure of judgment. I feared that windpower was stupendously inefficient and ludicrously expensive and that by falling for the greatest energy hoax of our time, the Labour government could be consigning Britain to a very dark future. So unreliable are wind turbines — thanks to the wind’s constant vagaries — that they are one of the most inefficient means of producing electricity ever devised."


"The erection of a wind turbine creates apprehension in the general public, which makes the property less desirable and thus diminishes the prices of neighbouring property...” “Continuing scientific uncertainty over the adverse health consequences of wind turbines only serves to perpetuate the debilitating effect of wind turbines on property prices.”
Ben Lansink, Appraiser

Ontario court dismisses a lawsuit against wind company.

By: John Spears Business reporter http://www.thestar.com/

An Ontario court says that landowners near a proposed wind farm have suffered diminished property values.

A lawyer for the landowners says the decision will clear the way for more actions against both wind developers and those who lease their land for wind turbines.

But a spokesman for the wind power company says the evidence that the court heard was “speculative,” and the proceedings never reached the point where core issues were addressed.

Wind farms have scarred the British landscape and turned the public against the renewable energy agenda, an Energy Minister has conceded.

Greg Barker made the admission as he promised that future projects would be located off-shore.

‘We put certain projects in the wrong place,’ the Energy and Climate Change Minister said. ‘Some planners have been too insensitive to the impact on the landscape and it has turned public… Continue reading

ALBANY, N.Y. — Huge wind turbines are dotting the landscape in New York and Massachusetts, producing megawatts of green energy. So why would people living near these giant windmills want them out?

While green energy has become a priority in many states, those who live with it in their backyard say it’s dangerous to their health and their farms.

“It sounds just like a prop jet outside the house,” says Keith Dillenbeck, his description… Continue reading

Approximately 80 Orangeville residents are preparing for possible legal action against wind-turbine leaseholders, if the coming windmills adversely affect the landowners.

David Bassett, one of the landowners represented by Lippes, said the lease holders notified should not… Continue reading

“The snouts in the easy money making renewable energy trough are many and varied.”

“There is an urgent need to eliminate conflicts of interest within our government.  The only reason people are not rioting in the streets about the unjustified increase in their power bills is that they simply have no idea what is going on.  There is enough evidence of fraudulent behaviour and corruption to justify a Royal Commission.”

The following draft… Continue reading
